Michael Grade's Stars of Musical Theatre with Michael Ball, Elaine Paige, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton, Joel Grey, Chita Rivera, Hal Prince and Trevor Nunn

Michael Grade has been hooked on musicals since he was a small boy and his family have represented some of the world's greatest musical performers. But one question has always fascinated him - is it the musical which creates the star or the star who makes the musical?

Michael Grade's Stars of Musical Theatre is being broadcast on BBC 4 on Thursday 2nd January at 21:35. Or it is being repeated on BBC 4 on Friday 3rd January at 01:45 and Tuesday 7th January at 01:40.

 To try and find the answer he interviews stars and directors on both sides of the Atlantic including Michael Ball, Elaine Paige, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton, Joel Grey, Chita Rivera, Hal Prince and Trevor Nunn.

He looks at musical performances from the 1940s onwards in shows including Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Evita and Les Miserables as he tries to define what it is that makes the great musical stars great.
